Interview Experiences
Two panel interviews.
awesome
Beautiful day while I was there.
2 panel interviews, breakfast, tour, lunch. Faculty was warm and friendly outside of interviews, but poker-faced during the interviews.
2 interviews, both are panels with 4 faculty. Poker-faced, more serious interviews. However, very sincere, not intimidating
2 interviews days are both split into AM and PM. In the AM the group was split into a tour group (great tour) and then 2 panel interviews, very poker-faced but not at all grilling and uncomfortable
6 interviews, dinner, bacon doughnuts
4 panel interviews (3 faculty per panel). Not intimidating and very friendly faculty. Huge faculty turnout during lunch despite rainy Saturday.
Program Advantages
Beautiful facilities, friendly faculty, lots of NEI money, dedicated research time in curriculum, now five residents.
location, great atmosphere, great training. great preparation for either comprehensive or fellowship training
Very tough decision between this and my number one. Amazing surgical and clinical volume. Excellent, friendly faculty. Very up to date facilities and equipment. Emphasis on international service. Research elective built in early on.
Beautiful facilities, excellent faculty. Very strong Uveitis. Large program, great city. Great surgical numbers.
Awesome place, great surgical #s, academic-oriented, retina dept is fantastic, Portland is great/unique, beautiful facilities
Big, broad program. Great facilities. Good numbers, good fellowship placement. Portland is a nice city.
Location, residents are nice, faculty seem really accessible.
Very happy residents that are definitely not worked to the bone. Great training with international opportunities. Great perks.
Portland is a hip and wonderful city casey is a big name
- nurturing program, 6 mo of buddy call collegial environment - training sites either onsite or within 5 miles
Some of the happiest residents you meet on the interview trail. Well-respected and match well for fellowship. There seemed to be a pipeline between OHSU-Iowa-Utah. Beautiful facility with VA med center connected by sky bridge. Fully equipped Casey vision
Program Disadvantages
none
Not any really. Portland and Casey were fantastic.
haven't matched a resident into retina in over 4 years, very few weaknesses
Cloudy? I'm trying to think of something bad, but it's tough to come up with anything.
Rain, otherwise, nice.
Seems to be a well-regarded program by many, but doesn't show up in the rankings. Not as many match at big name fellowships
competitive feel, residents seemed overworked
Hand holding environment (ie. 1st year residents must work-up any attending patient with the upper level or faculty through the first 6 months). Portland is a very unusual city which was not for me.
